InRoads celebrates week of giving

ST. HELENS, OR (December 21, 2020)

InRoads Credit Union used social media videos to help raise awareness of seven (7) local non-profit organizations over seven days, in addition to donating to each. The Week of Giving ran from Monday 12/14 through Sunday 12/20.

The goal of the week-long effort was to donate funds, supplies, toys and more to important non-profits serving the community while encouraging their members to do the same. Using social media platforms, the credit union raised awareness of the organizations amongst their 2000+ followers during the holiday season which is anticipated to generate additional donations from the community in the weeks and months following the Week of Giving.

“We urged our members to join us in supporting seven local non-profits over a period of seven days,” said Brooke Van Vleet, InRoads President/CEO. “The Week of Giving was an amazing success. Our members have wonderfully kind and giving hearts.”

Along with a daily video to promote each of the seven charities, the credit union’s donations included $500 worth of hams for the Columbia Pacific Food Bank, plenty of toys for CASA, clothes and toys for Riverside Community Outreach, home supplies for Habitat for Humanity, a $1500 donation to CU 4 Kids benefitting Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, gift cards for SAFE, and a donation of office supplies and pet food for the Columbia Humane Society.
